To achieve a perfectly flat and smooth floor from restoring it requires not just specialist floor sanding equipment, but also years of experience using them. Many people / companies believe they can just get a sander and start sanding their floors with it, after reading tutorials and watching videos on the internet. This is ok if you are not looking to have the best finish or even if you don’t mind possibly ruining your floor. Peak Flooring do not cut corners when floor sanding! There are many corners to cut when sanding a wooden floor, such as not going through the sanding grits correctly, not buffing / finishing the wood correctly, not edging properly and not sanding the corners down level. Not to mention sealing and lacquering properly.

If you have a beautiful wood or parquet floor in your home in London and it’s looking a bit dull, dirty or you think it has come to the end of its life. There is no need to worry, as every wooden floor we ever visit we make them look like new again saving our customers a small fortune. Floor sanding is normally half the price or more of replacing a wooden floor, so it’s financially a good idea and at the same time you end up with the same finish.

Resealing your London home floor every 2 – 3 years will make it not only look fresher and protect it, there is no sanding required. This means that the job is much smaller and much cheaper.
